On the inside cover is a black-and-white magazine photo of a 1940s or 50s car after having crashed head-on into a tree. On top of this image to the left is a shallow box, framed with blue diamond-patterned cloth. In the back of this small box is a color magazine photo of a woman’s head showing the top of her face with her long golden hair flowing upward. On the bottom of the inside cover is text from a children’s book, pasted in such away to act as a caption:“One brown pony for me to ride.”
Covering the frame is text from a story about Red MacGregor. On the outside edge, in the text, is the heading The Outlaw from which this assemblage piece gets its title. The frame are covered with a print of the Van Gogh portrait of Lieutenant Milliet. The painting is also the source of the inside side panels and bottom panel of the main compartment. The background of the main compartment is a newspaper etching of a crowd of Victorian era men standing in an expansive, tall, ornate hall. The central object in this space is a construction of a narrow rectangular glass enclosure containing five clear marbles. This enclosure is capped on the sides with tile game pieces depicting the letter N. Atop this enclosure are three plastic toy figurines of Indians in feathered headdresses and carrying weapons. The title, date, and signature are on the outside bottom of the frame.
